Toulon International Tournament

The readiness of Nigeria's U20 team for next month's World Cup in Turkey will be tested today by defending Toulon International Tournament champions Mexico.

The open their campaign at the Stade Perruc Hyeres in France by 5.30pm, which is 4.30 Nigerian time. This will be Nigeria's first outing at the 46-year-old tournament and the Flying Eagles will use it to prepare for the World Cup in Turkey.

Six of the 10 teams at this year's competition will feature at the U20 World Cup, namely Nigeria, Portugal, Colombia, France, United States of America, and South Korea.

"We have a good team who have been responding to training. We will see how much they have learnt thus far," said the Flying Eagles German assistant coach Jurgen Press. Cote d'Ivoire have been the only African winners of this tournament, when they won it three years ago.

Mexico and Nigeria last clashed at U20 level two years ago when the CONCACAF giants defeated the Flying Eagles 4-1 in another invitational tournament in Panama preparatory to the 2011 U20 World Cup in Colombia.

Six-time African champions Nigeria will line up several players like U17 international defender Wilfred Ndidi, Switzerland-based goalkeeper Sebastian Osigwe and new Olympiacos of Greece midfielder Michael Olaitan, who are pressing to make the final 21-man squad for Turkey 2013.

Enugu Rangers striker Alhaji Gero is expected to put behind the death of his younger brother this week as he aims to guarantee his place in the party to Turkey following the emergence of Dolphins striker Samuel Eduok as an attacking option for the team.

Mexico are handled by the experienced Sergio Almaguer and will parade FC Dallas of USA goalkeeper Sanchez Alcaraz along with players drawn from several of the country's top clubs like Pachuca, Monterrey, Atlas and Cruz Azul.

To qualify for the 2013 World Cup, Mexico won five matches, scored 15 goals and conceded only a goal to emerge undisputed CONCACAF cham-pions.

Meanwhile, Organi-sers announced no fewer than 1512 full internationals have passed through this annual competition and they include the likes of David Beckham, Frank Lampard (England), Mascherano (Argentina), Kaka (Brazil), Oman Biyk (Cameroon), James Rodrigues (Colombia), Kolo Toure, Didier Zokora (Cote d'Ivoire) as well as Lilian Thuram, Didier Deschamps and Nicolas Anelka (France).

It has proved to be veritable ground for clubs and scouts across the world to watch first-hand promising prospects in top-class action.
